Some of our recent activities

Return to nomad life

One of our major projects in the last year has involved helping two very poor re-settled nomad families return to nomad life. Heart of Asia supported their return to their preferred traditional self sufficient earth based lifestyle through the purchase of 10 female yak, (each with a baby) as a starter herd for each family.

Support for orphaned children

Other activities this year have included assisting various projects concerned with the support of orphaned children. These include work to help children affected by the devastating Yushu earthquake, and also, support for an orphanage set up in Nangchen.

TB awareness DVD

Due to the initiative of our 2 wonderful volunteer doctors, we have been able to fund a fantastic TB awareness DVD that is already being used widely among communities outside Tibet and is poised to be promoted within Tibetan communities in western China (AKA old eastern Tibet).
